The secret to beautiful skin

The secret is simple: Look after your body, make healthy lifestyle choices and follow the right skincare routine.

Here are five essential secrets to help you achieve beautiful skin:

1. Know your skin type

Cleansing, toning and moisturising are a must but women with dry, oily, combination and sensitive skin types have specific concerns beyond keeping skin clean and supple. NIVEA Daily Essentials has a range of products to suit your skin type.

2. Keep calm

Stress affects your skin by triggering the overproduction of cortisol, which can suppress the immune system and overstimulate oil glands. Take a yoga class to help you de-stress and let go of your worries. NIVEA Daily Essentials Shine Control Facial Wash Gel helps reduce excess oil to keep your skin beautifully matte.

3. Make a move

Being active increases blood flow, which nourishes skin cells and flushes toxins. Get 30 minutes of moderate exercise five times a week. Refresh and rehydrate your skin with NIVEA Daily Essentials Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes after a good workout.

4. Get some beauty sleep

Thank your mother for sending you to bed early when you were younger. Your skin needs time to repair itself and getting enough sleep is a great way to keep ageing at bay. NIVEA Daily Essentials Regenerating Night Cream moisturises skin overnight to keep you looking young.

5. Feed your face

Did you know that your skin renews itself every 28 days? Your skin needs a steady supply of micronutrients to support this constant growth and you need to slough off dead skin cells. Make sure you eat nutrient-rich foods like dark green leafy vegetables, oily fish, orange vegetables and fruit, and almonds. Try NIVEA Daily Essentials Skin Refining Scrub to exfoliate while maintaining the skin’s moisture balance.
